I offer personal, professional and senior level coaching working directly with individuals or through organisations. I also deliver group coaching and Action Learning Set facilitation which is particularly beneficial in supporting teams through organisational change.
There are various stages in our lives and careers when we need some space to take stock, reflect and re-calibrate for the next phase. Life and work events, and natural transitions, often trigger these moments.
Moments such as:
Senior leadership challenges
Getting to grips with a new role
Missing out on a promotion
Work life balance
Change and transitions
Following the Coronavirus pandemic, I'm increasingly coaching around strengthening resilience and building positive mindsets.
I use an integrative coaching approach, drawing on a broad range of techniques and tools from solution focused coaching, positive psychology and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), to cognitive behavioural coaching. I consider my clients to be the experts and work with them as equal partners, providing the thinking space and questions necessary to help them gain the insight and find the solutions they need to progress their goals. The coaching journey is an opportunity for real reflection, deep learning and experimentation. My coaching style is warm, open, creative, connected and non-directive, which allows my clients to gain insight and self-awareness and develop their own solutions.
I’m not inflexible, however, and if I feel I have particular insight, knowledge or experience that may support clients then I will, with permission, offer this without expectation or direction. It is always the clients who decide their actions at the end of each session, and as a coach I hold the client to account.
I work locally in Shropshire and throughout the UK. I work via Zoom, Skype, telephone or in person.
I am a professional and qualified coach accredited member of The European Mentoring Coaching Council (EMCC). I work to the Global Code of Ethics for coaches, mentors and supervisors.

Over a period of around 6-8 months, Gayle worked with me to help identify barriers in my thinking and provided some useful tools to help boost my confidence and performance in the workplace. Gayle listened, challenged some of my assumptions and gently encouraged me to grow and push myself. As a direct result of her input and support I progressed to a senior manager role and I would thoroughly recommend her as an excellent coach.
